Farmers for hike in MSP to cotton

With rising costs due to drought-like conditions, cotton farmers demanded that the Centre announce a bonus on the already declared MSP of Rs 4,050 per quintal for kharif 2014-15. They said Rs 6,000 per quintal would be the ideal MSP for their produce.

The farmers said they can be bailed out of troubles only if they get a good MSP as they had already incurred heavy loss due to crop failure. It is expected that this time the harvesting period would be delayed by two months due to late sowing. Cotton was sown in 3.10 lakh hectares in Adilabad district.

Farmers said they got nearly Rs 4,000 per quintal for cotton last year in the open market but the same price would not be sufficient this year, due to the heavy rise in investment cost this kharif. 

However, it is expected that the private cotton traders are likely to offer good price for cotton than the MSP announced by the central government as the cotton yield is likely to drop heavily this year, when compared to last year.

The cotton farmers want the state government to mount pressure on the central government seeking a hike in the MSP for cotton. The farmers said they should be given at least Rs 7,000-Rs 8,000 per quintal in the open market to bail them out of debts. The central government announced an MSP of Rs 4,050 for fine quality cotton and Rs 3,750 for medium quality for kharif 2014-15.

Kotnak Ramesh of Ruyyadi village in Talamadudu mandal said the Centre should doubt the present MSP to save the distressed farmers. He said he went for a third showing in his 20 acres and that seeds germinated only in 6 acres. He said he had incurred a loss of Rs 70,000 due to crop failure.

There are many other farmers like Ramesh who have pinned hopes on the announcement of bonus on cotton by the Centre.

Murukulu and Karjelu to tickle Telangana taste buds

Murukulu and Karjelu to tickle Telangana taste buds

DC | Pillalamarri Srinivas | June 09, 2014,

Adilabad: People in Telangana had led a struggle for separate statehood to the region as they wanted to experience self-governance and for self-assertiveness. The Telangana activists also lamented that their culture and tradition, which is quite different from that of the Andhra people, was getting concealed in the ‘dominance of the latter’. 

Hence, after the formation of separate Telangana, people launched celebrations in a grand manner which continued for a week that included programmes to revive the culture and tradition. Women took out processions with ‘batukammas’ and ‘bonalu’, an exclusive tradition observed by the females in the region.

Similarly, the festivities also included T food festivals wherein snacks and dishes, which originated and are mostly like the sole property of the region, were put up for people’s taste buds. The T snacks varied from ‘karampusa’, ‘karjelu’, ‘murukulu’, ‘gavvalu’, ‘sarvapindi’ to  ‘gudalu of pesarlu and bobbarlu’. Many other food items, apart from the authentic biryani, have also been put on display at the food festival at the festivities.

The food habits and tradition serve to be unique identity of people belonging to a region. The food festivals, which were organised as part of the festivities, helped in reviving the culture of the region. K. Satyanarayana, a resident of Shantinagar in Adilabad town who attended the festival with his children said that they enjoyed eating all the special and rare Telangana items. “My children some special dishes for the first time in their life at the food fest,” he added.

Anganwadis to turn play schools : KG to PG free education, Telangana government

Anganwadis to turn play schools
DC CORRESPONDENT | September 13, 2014

ADILABAD: The Telangana state government has plans to convert anganwadi centres in village and towns into play schools, under the KG to PG free education scheme. Further, kinder garten sections (LKG and UKG) in English medium will be introduced in the government schools. 

The officials are working out on modialities to convert anganwadi centres into play schools. For this, the anganwadi centres will be transferred to the education department from the ICDS in health department. In the play schools, the kids would be provided with quality nutritional food, toys and play things.

That apart, the centres would also have the interiors decorated with cartoon characters painted on the walls and other festoons hung from the ceilings. Gardens would also be grown in the open spaces at the centres, wherever it is possible.

Teacher MLC Pula Ravinder said the state government would convert the anganwadi centres into play schools from the next academic year. Efforts are on to make the education system equip Telangana students to face global competition, he said.

He said, “Uniform education system will be introduced in Telangana like in America where both a senator’s child and common man’s child study in the same government school.”

The state government is planning to introduce KG to PG free education from the next academic year. The state is of the opinion that it would be good to introduce English medium in government schools from pre-primary sections in view of the increasing demand.

As many as 3,540 anganwadi centres are functioning under 18 ICDS projects in Adilabad district and only 40 per cent of these are running in government buildings. The remaining are housed on rented premises. 

Nutritional food is being provided to pregnant and lactating women under the limits of 12 ICDS projects under Indiramma Amrutha Hastham scheme and nutritional food called ‘Balamrutham’ is given to children below 3 years.
